Elisa Masten Carr

Plant City - Elisa Masten Carr, 86, peacefully passed away on October 10, 2018 surrounded in love by her family.

Born on March 25, 1932 in Union, SC to Irwin Masten and Mary Elizabeth McNeel, and she graduated from Union High School in 1950 and attended Winthrop College in Rock Hill, SC.

In 1953, Elisa married William G. Carr. They lived in many places, including California, Houston, New Orleans Savanah and Lakeland before settling in Plant City in 1980.
She will be remembered by her large still life paintings of flowers and vegetables. She traveled around the world (Rome, Paris, London, Russia, China and Japan) as well as by RV throughout the US and Canada. Elisa enjoyed reading, working crossword puzzles, and sewing, but most cherished her time spent with her husband, family and friends.

Elisa is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, William G. Carr; her daughter, Cathy Carr; her son, Paul Carr (Nancy); her grandchildren, Nathan Carr and Megan Carr; and her sister, Paula Graham.
